Enough work, time to reflect on the last six days

First up was two loops of clear warm 3/8 inch incandescent rope like up in the cornice molding. it will be a bit until I get a decent picture but if you look close in this picture you can get a preview.



Next I had this big roll of Linacoustic , I don't know what I was thinking when I said sure I'll take the 59 inch wide stuff.



two layers on the front wall.

Speaker Columns

I made some frames from two layers of 1/2 inch Sandply. Glued and Stapled . Basically 1x1 frames with overlapped joints and a mid span spreader to resist bowing

Painted the leading edge black, wrapped in fabric and added Velcro. Added insulation to the interior of the columns and a layer of Linacoustic

Fabric Panels

The design called for panels surrounded by wood frames of a contrasting color, so I elected to build the panels on wall with 1 inch thick furring ripped from 2x4s

So one morning I said "let there be frames" and there were frames glued and stapled (2 inch) to the wall.







Painted the frames black and added linacoustic in key areas, Linacoustic with scrim in other areas. Used large head screws (Powerhead) and press on black covers.

Saturday was all about the FABRIC

The secret to working with the fabric is to be one with fabric,



If you compliment the fabric constantly telling it how good it will look on the wall it will generally cooperate with the process resisting snags and runs.

I like to start with a straight factory edge on top, staple it all across with the proper tension then roughly position the fabric with tacks to make sure I have it positioned correctly hanging down straight.





Fast forward

Lets talk about the contrasting color frames.

NYGF23 prepainted the rake molding and today I installed it. I used the outside measurement technigue with tape and a scrap of the molding to located the outside corners, then measured, cut and installed.

I used the tacks across the top edge to get the tension the way I wanted it and then tacked down the sides. It made it much easier working alone to get the weight of the fabric on the frames and was repositional until you get the way you want it, Then it's easy to go along and staple everything. And I used the solfege (the factory end with the band along it on the top) as a straight edge. Then I went back with a razor knife and trimmed it off. SHARP blade is a must!

GREAT work as always, Big!

WOW!!!!!

Another amazing local build and Mr. Big being the center of it all.

This is a thing of Beauty - Subscribing to see more and ultimately the finished product which should be shortcoming.

Ohhh BTW - Go GIANTS!

Did you use Linacoustic in each of the framed panels above the wainscotting?

1" or 2" ?

I really like how you attached the fabric to the furing strips then trimmed around. It looks great.

Nice! Can we get a close up of a corner of one of the fabric frames with molding/trim? Just curious what the reveal looks like.

Thanks D.

Today we blocked the view of all the work of many who contributed to the wainscotting and built the shell of the third row sit/stand bar. Tomorrow we'll dress it up a bit.

Hey Landshark, the carpet is coming this Thursday. I the middle of my order I changed my mind and went with a lighter brown instead of the chocolate brown. I hope it looks good. If not, I am stuck with it and I will learn to love it.

The lights will all be on dimmers, I'm sure there will be a setting that makes the carpet look "just right".
